The midterm election season is in full swing and we’ll check in with several of our political experts to learn more about the candidates, the races to watch and what to expect. Thom Tillis and Kay Hagan are waging intense campaigns, and with a lot of money from out of the state. Dan Clodfelter’s move to become Charlotte’s mayor has created an opening in the state senate. The GOP senate candidates debate this week and new legislative maps will have a big influence on the midterm elections. We’ll get up to speed on everything to know before the May Primary vote and beyond.
